Karen Millen A/W 16 collection


I spent a lovely afternoon in Karen Millen last week, trying on a few pieces of their new Autumn / Winter collection, I was in heaven. I would have liked to have tried it all on but I didn't want to hog the changing rooms any longer. There are some gorgeous pieces in the collection and lots of colour items  too, which is so nice to brighten up the coming winter months. 
I tried on 3 outfits opting for a smart / casual jeans / jumper combo, a beautiful red lace dress, great for a smart occasion teamed with the Karen Millen faux-fur collar coat and a blue pleated dress which I felt very 'Marilyn Monroe' in (I just needed to be in New York above a subway grate) Here's my video, take a look...

What you decided I should wear to Boux Avenue Summer launch


My latest dilemma was what to wear to the Boux Avenue Summer launch which was being held at the beautiful Haymarket Hotel in the heart of London's Theatre district.

As it was a party to launch Boux Avenue's Summer range I decided to include some of their clothing as part of my outfit options and these were the choices...

It's exciting for me to see the votes coming in and finding out which one you think I should wear but it was clear from the start with this 'What to wear' dilemma it was between Outfit 1 or 2. Eventually with a whooping 70% of the votes the floral dress came through and won.

I genuinely don't think there's been a time where you guys have got it wrong and this time was no different. It was the perfect outfit for a pool party which was the theme of the event. Held in the spa area at the hotel, the venue looked stunning.

It was a great evening, meeting up with some old friends and mixing with some celebs! As well as viewing the new swimwear and nightwear collection we got an exclusive preview of the A/W15 collection. We were treated to some special Boux Cocktails which were delicious and some sweeties! 





 The Spring / Summer collection is truly lovely with something for everyone. Combining key trends of florals and vintage glamour.

And on top of all that we were gifted with a lovely little bag of Boux Avenue goodies.




And so here I am in my outfit voted for by you - outfit 1 - the perfect choice. Thank you for voting and making my what to wear dilemma not a dilemma :)

What to Wear to Boux Avenue Summer Launch party?

I've been fortunate enough to be invited along to a few Boux Avenue launch's and openings now and on Thursday I'll be going along to the Summer launch. As well as cocktails & canapes, and DJ sets from Charlotte De Carle and Becca Dudley there will be an exclusive preview of Boux Avenue AW15 collection. I love seeing a preview of things before they hit the shops!


What do you think I should wear? I thought it would be cool to wear some of the Boux Avenue collection as outer wear so I've mixed a pretty cami top with some jeans, a floral night dress that can be worn as a summer day dress and sexy basque top.

I just need you to decide which one I should wear to the party? Vote at the bottom for the one I should wear and the outfit with the most votes I'll wear to the event. Here they are...

What you decided I should wear to Michelle Mone's Book launch

What you decided I should wear to Michelle Mone's Book launch

Firstly thanks to everyone that took part and voted for what I should wear to Michelle Mone's book launch last week. It was exactly the right outfit and that's why I always trust you with making my what to wear decision for me :)

It was between these 3 outfits; A LBD, a white jumpsuit and a stripe skirt ensemble...


People voted in America / India / Spain / Australia and Morocco to name but a few, which is fantastic but I still find it mad crazy!



It was a clear winner really although at one point it did look like the jumpsuit was going to win and I'm so glad it didn't because the host - Michelle Mone was in a stunning white Suzanne Neville gown and she looked amazing! Somehow it would have just felt wrong being in white as well.

So the outfit you decided I should wear with 44% of the votes was the little black dress.




It was a fun night, held at Salmontini, Belgravia. I've never met Michelle before but she seemed like a really lovely lady. All the guests were gifted with a goody bag with some nice little treats inside including Michelle's autobiography 'My Fight to the Top'. I love autobiographies and Michelle's story is an inspiring one, that's for sure. Proof that whatever your beginnings you can achieve anything with determination. A recommended read for all.


Thanks once again for voting my fabulous personal stylists, keep your eyes peeled for my next what to wear dilemma!

Hi Guys,

I could do with your help on this one.

What to wear to a book launch? In fact it's the launch of Michelle Mone's autobiography 'My fight to the Top'. I've been invited along to an exclusive party to celebrate the launch and I can't decide what to wear. The party is being held at Salmontini in Belgravia, take a peek so you get an idea of the venue and it will help you decide what I should wear. It’s a very glamorous location as you’d expect as Michelle herself is a glamorous, inspirational woman who has worked incredibly hard to get to the top as she explains in her book.

I'm going to let you decide what I should wear. To help you make the decision look at the venue and think of the location - Belgravia - Posh with a capital P. Bear in mind the type of event it is too. When you've looked at the choices make your decision by voting at the bottom.

Ok, here's the outfits you have to choose between...

How to survive the most depressing day of the year...have a wardrobe refresh

Pin It Now!


In the news on Saturday it said that January 17th is (statistically) the most depressing day of the year. I didn't feel remotely depressed to be honest, the sun was shining and it was the weekend but I felt it was a good excuse to go shopping. I got some 'Wallis' vouchers for Christmas so I thought I'd go and spend them on the most depressing day of the year.

With the new seasons clothes coming in rather than buying 1 item I wanted to buy a few key pieces to update my existing wardrobe and give it a refresh ready for the spring.

Here's my haul....

Scarf
I'm a big believer in the power of the scarf. By adding this leopard print scarf to my trusted biker jacket its a great finishing touch to this basic wardrobe piece.



Graphic Leopard Print Scarf



Bag
A new bag can change your whole look and transform a whole outfit. I went for this one because I wanted to add some colour and its BIG!

Red Shopper Bag


Printed Trousers
Printed trousers are a bit like Marmite you either love them or hate them, I've grown to love them. It's a trend that's been around for a while and doesn't look like moving on just yet. Great for a casual or evening look and this pair are extremely comfortable.
Monochrome printed Trousers from Wallis
Blazer
A classic Blazer which will carry me through until Autumn. I went for a neutral shade so it can be worn with anything.
Stone Ponte Jacket



I hope you like my wardrobe refresh January 17th certainly wasn't depressing for me.



What to wear on New Years Eve

Pin It Now!

It's the biggie - what to wear on New Years Eve? For some reason this one is the hardest of all the dilemmas to decide as we all put so much pressure on ourselves to have a good night and that pressure feeds into finding the perfect outfit to wear as well. This year we're going to a dinner dance type thing. For the men its black tie so nice and easy for them and for us girls its a posh frock. Which one do you think I should wear? I'm really undecided, do I plunge it out in white with a diamante belt? Go demure in an off the shoulder number or raise the hem line and sparkle the night away in sequins. help me decide...

What to wear to press night of Wicked the musical?

Pin It Now!


Thursday is a special day as I'm going along to see an ex pupil of mine in the musical 'Wicked' at the Apollo Victoria Theatre. Most of you won't know that I used to be a dancer and then a dancing teacher in a previous life so I'm incredibly proud & excited to be going along to see him in this amazing show. I'm taking along my sister-in-law and will be making an evening of it. We're going for dinner at Bistro 51 first and then on to see the show and it also happens to be press night as well on Thursday so people may be a bit more smartly dressed. What to wear? vote for the one you think and that's what I'll wear. By the way when you look at outfit 3 bear in mind I'll wear it with matching navy trousers rather than the black ones in the picture, I couldn't find them when I was taking the photos so please use your imagination :)
